This vehicle has now been delivered to Go North East, and is now undergoing PDI prior to entering service. This batch of five coaches have been ordered to replace the oldest stock at Chester-le-Street Depot's Coaching Unit, although only four of the coaches released will be withdrawn and disposed of, owing to the PVR increase in the Coaching Unit last year. Due to an issue at the DVLA with registering the original registration marks, 7138 - 7142 surrendered their BD68xxx registration marks prior to delivery and were re-registered to BM68xxx series registration marks. This vehicle is now consequently registered as BM68 AHD.
